Strawberry Basil Lemonade

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

I know I have mentioned grilling season a few times in the paste few weeks, and I wanted to share the perfect beverage to enjoy at a cook out or even while laying by the pool. We started growing our own basil, so I am having a blast being creative and finding new ways to enjoy my little herb garden. This lemonade has zero added sugars and if you aren’t doing Whole30 you could even do a splash of vodka in there for a refreshing summer cocktail!

 

Ingredients:

1 cup strawberries

4 lemons

1/2 cup basil

 

Directions:

  1. Wash your strawberries and basil. Cut off the tops of the strawberries.
  2. In a large pitcher, add in your strawberries and basil and muddle together until all of the strawberries are smashed.
  3. Add in the juice of all four lemons and stir.
  4. Fill the pitcher up the rest of the way with filtered water or sparkling water. 
  5. Stir and serve over ice.

*If you are not doing Whole30 you can also add in some maple syrup if you do want some extra sweetness. I have found that fruits taste so much sweeter to me now that I haven’t been having added sugar so that is why we did not add in!
